During pregnancy, women should always wear comfortable clothes. Choosing underwear that fit well and comfortable at the same time can be a challenge. Pregnant women tend to settle with bigger regular clothes and underwear thinking they are enough to cover their bulging bumps. Pay attention to details by wearing lingerie made for pregnant women, which can make a big difference in terms of comfort.
Regular-sized underwear will work only until the belly starts to show. Everyday maternity underwear feels more comfortable and fits better. Choose maternity bras that will accommodate enlarging breasts, and maternity panties to accommodate the growing belly and hips.
Cotton-made underwear can be soothing any time of the day, especially during warmer months. Choose a maternity bra that can also function as a nursing bra after giving birth. Avoid choosing a bra with underwire to eliminate discomfort. Don’t choose panties with tight, exposed garters. They can be painful near the pelvic joints and may cause rash and irritation.
Maternity Camisole and Chemise
A maternity camisole comes with hidden bust support, which eliminates the need for wearing a bra. It also has ruched sides to provide flattering detail as well as stretch to accommodate a growing belly. Wear camisoles at home with matching shorts or wear one under a low-neck dress or blouse outdoors.
A maternity chemise also has hidden bust support, but it is longer and looser-fitting than a camisole. A maternity chemise is ideal under a loose-fitting dress that has see-through material. Use it as a sleepwear for more comfort. There are maternity wrap-style chemises made with stretchable cotton jerseys. The front and back wrap-style V-neck can adjust to fit you better as you grow bigger.
Sexy Maternity Lingerie
Who says being pregnant means you cannot wear something sexy? Choose maternity bikinis and bras made of silks or laces. Picking jewel tones such as magenta, ruby red, purple and emerald green is one way to exude sexiness for those romantic evenings. Choose black to wear under a little black dress when attending formal dinners. Strapless lacy bras will work well under strapless evening dresses.
Wear a black teddy with satin ribbons that open up in the front. Choose a matching thong to complete the set. Wear baby doll maternity lingerie sets embellished with lace and ribbons. Complement with a suspender garter belt stockings for a sexier look.
